Philadelphia Woman Struck and Killed by SEPTA Bus

Shrager, Sachs, & Blanco law firm joins the rest of Philadelphia in mourning the senseless loss of a local woman. The 71-year-old woman was a resident of Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood and will certainly be missed by neighbors, friends, and loved ones. At 9:21 p.m. on Aug. 16, 2022, the front right passenger side of a SEPTA bus struck the elderly woman, knocking her to the ground. After she was hit by the bus, the woman was then dragged for a significant distance before the driver finally stopped. The[...]

Record Traffic Fatalities Raise Questions About Reckless Driving

Shrager, Sachs, & Blanco’ own managing partner Robert L. Sachs, Jr. recently made a poignant observation about a critical issue impacting our neighborhoods, city, and nation as a whole: “Almost every day when I am driving, I see someone make an illegal, bad, and dangerous choice on the roads. It has become routine to see people running traffic lights, running stop signs, and swerving across the double yellow line to overtake traffic on busy secondary streets. This needs to stop. And those who engage in such behaviors must[...]

What Are the Responsibilities of Doctors and Nurses During Childbirth?

If you've ever been in a birthing suite, whether delivering a child yourself or supporting a loved one with their childbirth process, then you're likely aware of how tense it can be in that environment. The situation is not all that different in an operating room if you undergo a Caesarean section (C-section). In both situations, there are a lot of people crowded into a very small room, and you and your baby's health and safety are contingent upon everyone knowing their role and doing what they're trained[...]

Is Medical Malpractice Difficult To Prove?

Medical malpractice is notoriously one of the most difficult types of cases in personal injury law. Proving medical malpractice requires knowledge of complex medical topics, strong relationships with experts in the field, and many other resources we will discuss further below. Even with over three decades of experience practicing medical malpractice law in Philadelphia—a city with some of the largest, wealthiest, and most reputable medical institutions in the country—the attorneys at Shrager, Sachs, & Blanco still believe there is no such thing as an “easy” medical malpractice case.[...]

Is Lack of Supervision in Nursing Homes Considered Neglect?

Making the decision to place a parent or a loved one in a nursing home is never easy. While you or other family members might have done your best to keep them at home, the care that many elderly or chronically ill patients require is outside the scope of what most people are capable of. The care, treatment, and supervision provided by nursing homes might be exactly what your loved one needed. You did your best when you went through the process of selecting a facility, perhaps going[...]

What Are Your Legal Options After a Firework Injury?

Last summer in July 2021, two Pennsylvania children, ages six and eight, were involved in a fire caused by improperly discarded fireworks in York County. One child was killed, and the other suffered severe burn injuries. This was, unfortunately, not an isolated incident. It’s estimated that close to 10,000 firework injuries occur each year across the country. Even worse, this number seems to be rising. It was reported that the number of firework-related deaths and injuries rose 50% from 2019 to 2020. The majority of these incidents occurred[...]

What Is an Unsafe Lane Change?

Almost every motorist has found themselves, at one time or another, driving down the road, minding their business, when they suddenly encounter another driver in an adjacent lane wanting to merge in front of them.  It can be stressful not knowing how to handle the situation. You may wonder if you should slow down, change lanes yourself, or something else. A motorist looking to change lanes is also likely a bit tense, wondering if they have enough time and space to merge in safely. Situations like these may[...]

What Happens When Your Doctor Misreads Your Test Results?

When you start experiencing unexplained symptoms, pain, or health concerns, your first stop may be your primary care physician. You trust your doctor to listen to your concerns and, when necessary, to send you for testing or to see a specialist. Many specialists have their own tests they like to run when meeting with new or established patients, as well.  Test results are often an essential component of correctly diagnosing a disease or illness. When your doctor misreads your test results, you could be at risk for additional[...]

What Factors Affect My Truck Accident Settlement?

Truck-involved collisions often have more devastating results compared to car-on-car ones. It's common for crashes between passenger cars and tractor-trailers to leave behind significant physical damage to the sedan or sports utility vehicle (SUV) involved and for these types of collisions to leave the non-commercial automobiles' occupants with debilitating injuries or dead.  The catastrophic nature of truck-involved collisions often leaves passenger car occupants wondering what rights to compensation they have. Perhaps the best way to make sense of how much of a truck accident settlement you might be[...]
